If wishes were true
I would be dead. As a kid I always wanted to be a pilot. But because I was color blind I never qualified. Good thing. If I hadn't flunked out of flight school I would surely have killed myself. There is just too much detail to keep your mind on to fly safely. Too easy to forget something.

flying the p 39
During the second world war my father worked for Bell aircraft. He ran a division wher he supervised 89 women and the plane they built was the p 39. This is where he met my mother. Seeing this film was the first time I was able to see moving pictires fo the p39. Thank you with all my heart. If their was a higher rating than 5 I would surley give it.
